Santa Rosa Beach

Founded in 1910, Santa Rosa Beach was the start of South Walton as we know it today. But this community of luxury beach houses, upscale dining and the beautiful Eden Gardens State Park is certainly not a relic of the past.

Named one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations for 2011” by Yahoo! Travel, Santa Rosa Beach is praised for its “lapping waves and cool sand” and the endless array of indoor and outdoor activities offered – like kayaking the tranquil waters of Choctawhatchee Bay or playing a round of golf on a championship course.
